City of Clare Urging Residents to Boil Water

The city of Clare is urging residents to boil their water because they found elevated bacteria levels in their water system.

The city says it happened over the weekend at a booster station when water pressure levels dropped for three minutes.

Now the city is working to flush their distribution system while increasing chlorine levels to sanitize the water delivery system.

That chlorine smell you might get the next few days is because of this, but the city says it’s not harmful.

When the boil water notice is lifted, we will let you know both on air and online.
